Not very robust - very poor in wind

Reviewed by Stratovolcano from Midland, TX on Friday, November 5, 2010
Set up is pretty easy and the construction is ok. The tent looks good. I took it on a recent fall camping trip in New Mexico. Night #1; had no problems. Night #2 we had gusty winds and the tent flattened almost completely to the ground, even with all clips clipped, all stakes and guy wires in place. The lack of rigidity and strength of the two-pole setup in such a relatively large tent is pretty shocking. If it is even moderately windy/gusty, it will be difficult to sleep in this tent. I don't recommend it unless you are doing only summertime fair weather camping and you're 100% sure there will be no wind. In other words, I simply cannot recommend it. Please look at something with more strength or bring a smaller, stronger backup tent on all trips.
